coalition? >> the city bike fully is an internal program and they are comfortable with this recommendation for this year. i'm not sure that we had any specific contact with the bike coalition with the bikes on this additional bikes are being procured this summer. if the department finds a need for additional bikes they can come ban the back and request more. >> commissioner breed? >> thank you, i have a few concerns over all about the program. i wanted to ask some questions. i know this has been in the works for some time. i wanted to ask about the the cost per bicycle rack at san francisco state versus the cost for the general bikefor example it comes out to $204 for bike rack versus $900 in general. so i just wanted some explanation of that? >> this is an excellent point. thank you for mentioning it. there are several different reasons why the difference is so great. san francisco state, the rack, the funding is only to procure the racks and for the actual direct staff time of a ground crews staff member to install the rack. whereas mta includes overhead cost procured by the sfmta procu

for victims in the city. i want to thank everyone for their leadership to get to this point in my question is, we talked about this a few weeks ago before the police commission. i think you are doing a great outreach to the community. obviously part of my concern that talk about over the last few weeks is in light of recent events in the city. the concern is that women who don't speak english or are living in poverty will have concerns about reaching out of the police department. we want to reassure and reach out. can you talk about your efforts to reach out to communities through various newspapers in different languages and how the department is getting the message out that we do have access to other languages and can serve diverse populations? >> anytime there is a community meeting, and it is based on a certain ethnicity group, we try to have interpretation service provided. we will post those signs in that language, so if it is held in chinatown or wherever, for that outreach. it is important when the victim makes the police report; it helps if a native speaker is there,

like the city and departments work together in the same way that the city and county works together. in 2011 and in my opinion some of the needs that were identified weren't respected or considered during the finding. i want to say that when we go through this and talk about the area of the children and youth leaving when i say that and talk about the rfps 94115 has the maureen and pacific heights how do you know where the need is? and the community serves hundreds of youth and students if they're not being funded we have true concerns where we've been work with the police department and the school districts and trying to a identify needs and issues. the american pedestrian - most of the programs that got cut have effected the youth. students that are attending scored significantly he lower and the district - there are tons of status that talk about 94115 that weren't considered. >> i'd like to let the folks know that they've set up a tv and get a good seat outside. next is the youth director nor districts 5 christopher winning >> good evening supervisors city members thank you f

the historyian of city hall. this building is multifaceted to say the very least it's a municipal building that operates the city and county of san francisco. this building was a dream that became a reality of a man by the name of james junior elected mayor of san francisco in 1912. he didn't have a city hall because it was destroyed in the earth wake of 1906. construction began in april of 1913. in december 1915, the building was complete. it opened it's doors in january 1916. >> it's a wonderful experience to come to a building built like this. the building is built as a palace. not for a king or queen. it's built for all people. this building is beautiful art. those are architecture at the time when city hall was built, san francisco had an enormous french population. therefore building a palace in the art tradition is not unusual. >> jimmie was an incredible individual he knew that san francisco had to regain it's place in the world. he decided to have the tallest dome built in the united states. it's now stands 307 feet 6 inches from the ground 40 feet taller than the united states

at other cities and a few other mta's are going to mexico city, i think clear channel runs that but there is different ways of organizing this. i think it's a well thought out project. i also support more bicycles in the key area that are in the city. >> yes, it's a thousand dollars per bike. this is part of solution. these bikes are like gps and they can't be stolen. the cost perspective if you remember this is the last mile the connection to transit. while bart thankfully they have been listing their bicycle access on board, we can we have still cannot bring bikes on munis, for those that cannot bring their bikes, this offers an option for transit and the san francisco plan, there was a lot of those very short trips within the downtown and maybe those are possible through bike sharing. this is part of the comprehensive package and mta aff has a brief in the office. one of the beauties of the pilot is to be forced to do an evaluation so all of these questions can be answered. >> i appreciate commissioner breed's consistently pointing out how do we reduce cost. i did see th

district in the city in terms of what it covers and the items for which it requires historic review for certificate of appropriateness. the reason that is as narrow as it is on community feedback about not wanting the district to cover anything beyond the truly characters of the district. also my request because to me it was very important for any district that we consider to be very narrowly and sharply focused on what actually makes this district historic and unique. for anyone in this propose district is truly one of the most beautiful areas of the city thanks in significant part to the people who live there who have absolutely transformed it and turned it into the beautiful neighborhood that it is next to one of the most beautiful parks in the city. this district also gave us an opportunity to take a look at how we administer the mills act which allows for tax credits for owners of historic property to maintenance contracts in the city. it's been used in a very robust ways and counties in the city of california has been somewhat looser here. it was illusory for those small prope

as a matter of public safety we're painting for the rest of the city if we want to make an imimprint on the city that we're doing a better job of tackling recidivism. 75 percent of our population is pretrial that means that a high majority of the folks in our jail population can't afford bail or people who certainly representative of more disadvantaged population. and for the first time in the null insensitive commission we're wrestling with old mainstays that have vexed criminal justice system nearly 70 percent of our jail population is with substance problems. but when you see mental health issues we're seeing a higher behavior court those were court again that were established some years ago and are worth their weight in gold so help process a population instead of just falling back on indicator first then rehabilitate later. the picking order is 55 thousand dollars a year so if we resort to more alternative ways to make a good use of resources we are saving the taxpayers significant amounts of money. i absolutely >> - excuse me. >> i welcome the budget analysts reports. >> tel

>> and so it makes me question how good of a deal the city's getting ting when you're also getting such positive pushing from the contractor as well. >> that's why i was glad that we received three bids and we tried to structure the lease to maximize the number of bids. in 2001 we only received a bid from clear channel and the fact that clear channel did 1.5 million more than jc so they did receive 30 percent, we receive 70 percent. i would n't call that profit because they've got cost and i have no idea what their actual profit is but bottom-line, we had a very aggressive bid. obviously clear channel is taking a big risk especially if we have a recession they are at great risk, and we will be very well protected. >> the potential upside for them is what set of circumstances. >> the upside would be if the economic growth continues and they realize more sales per passenger than what they're getting today. that's a [inaudible]. i don't see a possibility of traffic growing. i think their best scenario is steady growth, the eight years, very strong economy eight years straight. i'
